How I temporarily Screwed My SEO

As soon as I switched over to this new theme my search engine traffic plummeted. I was beginning to suspect that the spiders had confused the javascript that generates the markup for this theme's curves with an attempt to show two pages: one for spiders, one for humans. As it turns out however, it was a test site that I had forgotten to delete that was also showing Nick Lewis: the blog.

So google found the test site, and apparently knocked my search engine traffic in half. This morning I removed the test site, and my search engine traffic doubled, and is now at normal levels once again.

Well, at least I thought it was an interesting story....
